I have kind of been cheating the last few days. I have been very overwhelmed. The entire month of March has went by way to fast. Several things have made March a busy month. I have had several CPR classes which I am thrilled about but I have been busy. It was Reese's first birthday and of course we had a party, friends from out of town, a close friend's housewarming party, 2 other kid birthday parties. Then, I thru a Wii dance party, then there was my trip to Chicago, and there is still lots going on. I got home from Chicago on Thursday night and taught a CPR class Friday morning, went to Weekend Warrior on Saturday morning. Sunday I just tried to recover and do more laundry and chores. This week I had my BodPod appt Monday, CPR last night, I've scheduled a play date and my house tomorrow with the Maryville Moms group and I have a baby shower here on Saturday morning. Now....if you are involved in these upcoming activities, I don't want you to think that I don't want to do these things. Anyone that knows me knows I love a good party but sometimes it is just hard to get it all done. I don't know how I ever worked.
So this month has been nuts!! Those of you with more than 2 kids....I applaud you! I don't know how you do it. It is really hard to try and clean house, do laundry, plan parties, pack for trips, etc when I'm at home with the kids. I love them so much but I feel like you have to choose "clean or play"? I usually try to play! I like a clean home but my kids and the time I spend with them is more important. However, when I am throwing parties at the house I like to make sure the house is tidy..anyway, I am ranting. You get the point?
I think I will try to schedule less in April but it is already starting to look like a busy month as well. On a good note, it is a beautiful spring in East TN. The weather is warming up and it sure is beautiful outside. All of the dogwoods have just started to bloom and it truly is gorgeous. I bought a jogging stroller from a friend (getting it tomorrow). I am excited to start taking the kids on the greenbelt.
I need to get my butt in gear. Summer is right around the corner. I pretty much have 60 days. I am not where I want to be. My BodPod results were not where I wanted them. I really want to be 20 pounds thinner. I know I can do it but it is so hard sometimes. I talked to my trainer about doing a food log and having her check it but I haven't started. I need to go workout! I need to get on my treadmill (wish my darn foot didn't hurt still). She is really encouraging me to do the 20-25 min of cardio interval drills at least 2-3 times per week and the strength training 2-3 times per week.
